Moving toward his fourth decade of working with glass, Preston Singletary is sitting down at the MAC to talk about where the relationship between European glass blowing and Northwest Native art originates. This topic simultaneously describes Singletary, as he continues to explore his Tlingit heritage through his chosen art medium. His work has led him to receive international training and praise, and an honorary doctor of arts degree from the University of Puget Sound. Singletary’s art has been recognized by premiere art collections in the country, such as the Seattle Art Museum, the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
